Coming Soon! Cat Mother: Mendocino Coast Music

Saturday, June 4 Opening Event with Live Music, 1-3 PM and Panel Discussion 3:30-4:30 PM, Suggested donation: $5

The Kelley House pays tribute to legendary local ‘70s band Cat Mother and their impact on the Mendocino Coast with a collection of ephemera, albums, artwork, and articles. Cat Mother was an eclectic rock band formed in Greenwich Village, New York in 1967. They toured with Jimi Hendrix who co-produced their first album which featured the hit “Good Old Rock N Roll” in 1969. By 1970 Cat Mother was living on the Mendocino Coast inspiring locals with outdoor “Boogies” and sparking creativity and community on the coast.

Come join us on June 4, 1 – 3 PM for live music on the lawn with Frannie Leopold, Deb Dawson, Marcus McCallen, John Bush Kelley. This will be followed by a panel discussion inside the museum “Cat Mother Music, Memories, and Cannabis Culture,” moderated by Mark Gauche and with panelists Nicholas Wilson, Karl Schoen, Mark Hughes, and special guests. Co-sponsored with the Mendocino Film Festival.
